The ICAS Foundation provides bursary funding to eligible students studying accountancy or a finance related degree. The ICAS Foundation is a body that has been established by ICAS (Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland) to make a significant difference to academically talented young people from disadvantaged communities by helping them take their first steps into a professional career in accountancy or finance.
Young people from disadvantaged communities are under-represented at universities across Scotland and, in particular, on courses that lead to a life-long profession. ICAS, as one of the leading professional accountancy bodies in the world, believes that it can do more to open up access to the accountancy profession and has helped establish the Foundation to help do just that.
ICAS offers bursaries of up to £2,500 per academic year for students studying accountancy or a finance related subject. Students with parental income below £34,000 are eligible to apply.
